Worksheet 2

Capítulo 2 – Global Warming

Os problemas ambientais surgiram com a evolução do homem, desde quando se começou a descobrir
a tecnologia. A terra esteve protegida durante muito tempo, foi só ocorrer o surgimento do homem na
natureza que tudo começou a mudar e gerou o que conhecemos hoje como problemas ambientais.
No mundo são feitas, até os dias atuais, campanhas e projetos para salvar a natureza, pois ela é a nossa
fonte de vida, principalmente no que se diz respeito à água. Tudo serve de alerta à sociedade, que na maioria
das vezes se mostra despreocupada com o meio ambiente. A poluição das águas e do ar são os mais graves
problemas ambientais, pois ninguém vive sem água e muito menos sem respirar.
